Cannot Install Extensions

Postby auzmartist » Thu Jul 07, 2011 4:25 pm

Hello,
I am moving our site to a remote windows server from unix because of a new version of php on the Windows server's that our host provides. I am unable to install extensions on the new site though, because of my /tmp and /logs folders are "unwritable". I have contacted my host and they claim time and time again that everything is writable for the web user. In the meantime, my work is stagnating as I wait for 3+ hours for my host to fiddle with permissions to no avail. Has anyone had this problem? How can I fix it? Thanks for the help!

Alright, well it looks like I hadn't tried everything. After quite a while, I finally got the full path right on a hunch. I put that in to my configuration.php file and Viola!, things are writable now. However, I am still faced with a bewildering problem. I am still unable to install extensions. Here is the error that I get:
Warning! Failed to move file.

Warning: move_uploaded_file(\f810-e4.msp.eschelon.com\customer-home\C\colopetro\tmp\com_akeeba-3.3.b1-core.zip) [function.move-uploaded-file]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in \\f810-e4.msp.eschelon.com\customer-home\C\colopetro\libraries\joomla\filesystem\file.php on line 351

Unable to find install package


I opened file.php and took a look at it. Here's the comment on line 351:
// Short circuit to prevent file permission errors


Anyone know what might be preventing me from installing anything?

It's looking like it's still a permissions error but specific to the .zip file or something...I may be completely wrong but I'm just jotting down my thoughts.

I am having the same problem after following almost all instructions from othe thread..or maybe I am missing something here.

See the error massage I am getting:

JInstaller: :Install: Cannot find Joomla XML setup file
Path does not have a valid package


After installing VirtueMart I could no longer install any plugins or extension.
I even updated from Joomla 1.5 to 2.5.. Still facing the same problem.

For 6 days now I have not been able to complete installation of my shop on Joomla.
I want to accept payment using 2checkout

Anyone know what we should since we are having a similar issue or case here.

When I go to Extensions->Extension Manager->Upload Package File and select the extension from the upload package file tab (for Joomla 1.5-2.5) it gives the error

Code: Select all

An error has occurred.
SQL=SHOW FIELDS FROM `komento_activities`

The table komento_activities does not exist in my database. It appears as if it is trying to create it, but cannot. I do not see any errors in my logs. The extension website does not offer any troubleshooting for this problem.

Does anyone have any troubleshooting suggestions?
Joomla! is a extremely customizable
